Update from the last post at 39k. Im now at 50k and so far so good. It has been tuned and ran on e50 for the majority of the time. May need to do front brakes soon.

2020 with 79k. Just had the transfer case seal replaced, but now it’s slamming into gear from 6-5th. Off to the dealership she goes.. again
Currently at 52.6K miles.I got my rear differential, front axles. FADA and transfer case all replaced before 51K miles! Transmission rebuilt, new fuel pump and battery before 25K miles. Lots of major repairs all under powertrain warranty!

I just turned 40k on my 2022. I haven’t had it long. Runs great! I changed to full synthetic When I bought. Synthetic made a noticeable difference.

68k on my 20 ST. Cracked cat replaced but nothing else so far. Been using synthetic oil since first change. Assuming will need to do front brakes and battery soon.

I haven’t done much. I drive straight highway for 50 miles each way 5 days a week. Synthetic seems a bit smoother on acceleration. Premium fuel feels better as well.

2020 with 80k here, only major problem has been a rear diff, but probably attributed to having to run it 20 miles on the spare. Also replaced a wheel bearing at 50k but other than that no major issues outside of electrical bugs. Went to trade it in saturday, got a reality check on how bad these things have tanked in value in the last few months.

Hello,

I think I may have a bad rear wheel bearing with 51k.
Any sounds I should look for to conform?
I do hear what seems to be almost like a light rubbing, almost like when a brake rotor or pads need replacing.
